Bali's Rising Star on the International Contemporary Dance Scene

Bali's Nyoman Sura Taking the Contemporary Dance World by Storm – One Dance at a Time.


(9/23/2006)

Occasionally controversial and invariably exciting, Bali's Nyoman Sura is a rising star on the world's contemporary dance scene, enthralling audiences wherever he travels with his daring interpretations of a body of his work including his own choreography and the work of other leading creators of modern dance.

A 1996 graduate of the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) where he majored in dance performance, Sura now works at his almamater as a professor of movement. A prolific creator of new dances, Sura credits a pantheon of Indonesian dance greats for his inspiration: I Wayan Dibyo, Martono, Sardono, and G. Boy Sakti.

Included in the highlights of an increasingly distinguished history or triumphal performance are:

o "Lakuku" choreographed in 1999 and performed at the Gedung Kensenian Jakarta where it was ranked among the top 10 choreographies.
   
o Collaboration in 2000 with Marcia Hydi of Germany in the creation of Rama-Sinta.
   
o 2001 joined the Singapore Arts Festival performing Ritus Legong.
   
o 2001 established the Nyoman Sura Dance Company dedicated to new creations of dance within the broad context of Balinese dance traditions.
   
o 2003 performance of the Calonarang at the Japan Art Festival.
   
o 2004 performance of Bulan Mati at the Indonesian Art Festival in Jakarta. In the same year, an artistic collaboration with Gary Malkin, a leading composer from California.
   
o 2005 performance at 11th International Conference of Noetic Sciences with performances in Arlington (Virginia), New York or California.
   
o 2005 screen performance as Laksmana in the Garin Nugroho musical film Requem From Java.
   
o 2005 collaboration with the Californian group Tuju Taksu.
   
o 2006 performance of Waktu Itu at the Lombok Arts Festival
   
o 2006 performance at the Hong Kong Fashion week.
   
o 2006 performance at Dance Wave Fukuoka ’06 in Fukuoka, Japan.
